Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

There’s generous head- and legroom for tall adults in the front and rear seats, and plenty of space for five adults in the cabin. That said, it’s a shame that there’s no option for seven seats, whereas many rivals offer the option of seven.

A little consolation comes from the fact that the cabin is otherwise well thought out with regards to practicality; it features big door bins, cupholders, a central storage compartment and a decently sized glovebox. Not exceptional, by any stretch, but enough to prevent any frustrations in daily use.

The 782-litre boot is usefully large and squared off. Its opening is wide, too, and there’s no lip to lift things over. It is quite high off the floor, though, and isn’t as deep as you might expect. That’s as a result of the full-size spare wheel beneath the floor. That said, the boot’s far bigger than that of, say, a BMW X5.

The rear seats fold away entirely, however, leaving you with a vast amount of storage space. There’s some underfloor storage, too, which is ideal for stowing valuables or loose items.
